Presenter insists Spurs did not see Patrick Bamford as potential Harry Kane replacement

JustJoe Football Show presenter Joe Wainman insists Tottenham Hotspur never saw Patrick Bamford as a potential replacement for Harry Kane during the transfer window.

England captain Kane was heavily linked with a move away from Spurs after he publicly confirmed he wanted to depart his boyhood club having grown frustrated at a lack of silverware.

It led to Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admitting he was keen to sign Kane, but a deal could not be done and last season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner eventually revealed he would remain in north London by taking to social media days before the closure of the transfer window.

Would Bamford have been a good signing for Spurs?

While it initially looked as though Kane would force a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Leeds United striker Bamford was linked with a switch to Spurs.

However, a transfer failed to materialise as Bamford signed a new five-year deal at Elland Road and former All Leeds TV anchorman Wainman insists the Whites’ frontman would not have been an ideal replacement for Kane.

Okay, we'll start with an easy one... How much did Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg cost last summer?

He told Football FanCast: “It’s great to have him tied down to the club.

“Obviously, there were links to Tottenham. I don’t think he was ever going to be a replacement for Harry Kane. You have to be realistic.”
